Fundraising Tips and Tricks

Every dollar donated takes us closer to hitting our goal of raising $300,000 and brings us closer to finding a cure. 

Ask for Donations

Once you have donated to your own page, invite others to give also.
Send EVERYONE an email. 

  • Ask them to give.
  • Tell them why you are fundraising.
  • Make it personal.
  • Give them a link to your fundraising page.

Here is a SAMPLE email message that you can use or customize.

Studies show that donating gives people endorphins and makes them happy! Giving to a good cause is good for your friends, family, and co-workers. Don't deny them the opportunity. Ask everyone.
When your friends and family give (they will!), send them a quick thank you note. Email them and tell them you appreciate their gift.

Don't Give Up

Finally, don't be discouraged if your friends and family don't give right away. Some people procrastinate.  Others wait until pay day.  If they get your email while they're busy, they may forget so a polite, encouraging, positive reminder later will help.
